Vote for a Development cover – we have a winner!

Posted by , on 6 June 2018

Two weeks ago we set up our latest competition to vote for an image to adorn the cover of a future Development issue. The images were taken by students of the International Course on Developmental Biology, an EMBO Practical Course held at the Marine Biology Station of Quintay in Chile.

Voting has just closed, and with precisely 800 votes counted, we can now reveal the top three –


3rd Place (17% of the votes)

Sea anemone by Maria Belen Palacios


2nd Place (26% of the votes) 

Drosophila by Eugene Tine


1st Place (36% of the votes)

Drosophila by Soraya Villaseca


Blue: DAPI, green: motor neuron axons, pink: motor neuron nuclei


Congratulations to Soraya, and thanks to the other competitors Maria Belen Palacios, Eugene Tine, Luiza Saad and Estefanía Sánchez Vásquez. Look out for Soraya’s image on a Development cover later this year!
